“I waded through hundreds of CVs. Used my best interviewing techniques and probing questions. Checked his references and health and they were fine.
Took him on with great enthusiasm. Spent days introducing him to the business, clients and suppliers. Invested in a comprehensive training programme.
And low and behold , six months later, he’s failing miserably and is on the point of leaving. And, if he doesn’t go on his own accord, I am seriously considering pushing him out and cutting my costs.
And worse still, what do I face? Starting all over again with no more certainty of getting it right second time around!”
One of the most difficult tasks a manager or entrepreneur faces today is finding the right person for the job and/or opportunity. Most recruiters follow a suggested interview guide and trust their instincts. They recruit the individual and hope that with proper training and motivation, the individual will succeed. The difficulty with this approach is that it is human nature to recruit people we like and who have similar personalities to our own.
If you are a successful accountant and recruiting accounting staff, then you probably stand a 50:50 chance of recruiting the right person for the job. But, if you are an entrepreneur or manager, and you are recruiting for a position you have little experience in, chances are you will make a decision that you will later regret. To make matters worse, the average recruitment campaign costs a company at least £20,000 so the cost of getting it wrong can be substantial.
We can offer you, the employer, a way to significantly improve your recruitment decisions. We have over twenty years of experience of helping companies select the right person for the right job using tried and tested methods and the best recruitment selection tool on the market, namely our DISC profile.
The good news is that it will save you thousands of pounds and you can start using it NOW. It doesn’t involve you or the applicant completing lengthy consultancy sessions, attending meetings and enduring hours and hours of boring and irrelevant form filling.
You simply want to know whether you are making a good or a bad decision for your company’s future and we can help you.
